is celebrating summer at Alewives Fabrics with a BLOCK PARTY! Free
and open to all! Sunday,
August 4th from 1:00 to 4:00 we'll be making "St. Louis Sixteen Patch"
blocks. The Sixteen Patch is a very easy block, even for a beginner.
If you've never sewn up a quilt block before, but always wanted to try,
we'll help you get a couple made at the meeting. Bring two fat quarters
with you (one red and one white) and
we'll stitch up these blocks for a charity quilt (or two... or three!).
Bring your own
machine or use one of ours here at the shop. Rotary cutters, mats,
rulers and irons will be available to use, but feel free to bring your
own tools, too. We'll be serving
refreshments, and it's also the last day of Alewives' 20% off Midsummer
Clearance Sale. See you there!
Don't forget that we'll be doing show and tell, too! Bring your latest
project, a favorite fabric, a handy tool... anything you'd like to
share with your fellow sewing enthusiasts and artists of Maine!
